Catholic Charities to open new ambulatory detox program in Trenton

July 29, 2019 at 12:37 p.m.


Catholic Charities Diocese of Trenton is opening a new ambulatory detox program to round out a full complement of addiction and mental health recovery treatment services offered at their Trenton campus located at North Clinton Avenue and Southard Street.

“The addition of this new program, offering safe and cost-effective treatment for individuals seeking recovery from opioid and other substance dependence, is much needed,” said Marlene Laó-Collins, CCDOT executive director.

The ambulatory detox program, set to open in a few months, is the final component of the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC), a federally sponsored initiative that integrates behavioral health services, substance abuse treatment and primary care at Catholic Charities’ Trenton campus. This initiative launched on July 1.

“In just four months, consumers receiving care through the CCBHC have seen an overall reduction in the need for hospitalization and improved access to integrated services,” said Susan Loughery, director of operations at Catholic Charities.

More coverage of this story, including a look at the new clinic, will appear in an upcoming issue of The Monitor.
